Step 5

Heat the vegetable oil in a pot to fry the churros. Once hot enough, start piping the churro dough into the hot oil. Be careful while frying and use a knife or scissors to get clean cut edges. Once the churros are nicely golden brown, take them out and lay them on tissue paper to remove any excess oil.
